A bill that would declare President Barack Obama's signature health care law unenforceable in Nebraska is set for a hearing Thursday before a legislative committee.

The Legislature's Judiciary Committee will hear the proposal (LB515) by Imperial Sen. Mark Christensen.

The bill would impose a felony charge on any federal or private employee who tries to enforce the law in Nebraska, and a misdemeanor charge for state employees who do so.

The committee also is scheduled to hear a Christensen bill (LB647) that would prohibit state courts from using foreign laws in their rulings. The bill says that any ruling which cites a foreign law or legal system would become void in Nebraska.
